A fond farewell to 2015, we look forward to what 2016 has to bring.

We've had such a busy 2015, the year has flown by so quickly, as it increasingly seems to do.

This year was the year of our Quilt Show. Those who came along enjoyed the wonderful display of quilts, our stage display and our good food. 

Our other main focus for the year was our Honour Quilts which were not only displayed at our own quilt show but also at the Vic Quilters Show and during our local Anzac Ceremony. 

We had winners at Vic Quilters this year, Wendy and Jenny with Wendy's Dutch Treat Quilt and our youngest member Dellareece, who entered her Honour Quilt.


During the year our committee arranged several wonderful classes, sit n sews and our annual retreat.
For our members this is an opportunity to not only enhance their skills but gives them some much valued time to spend on themselves.

Next year we look forward to seeing further progress on the La Pasc. quilts some of our members are currently working on along with the nifty folded quilt as you go quilt that has many of us itching to start.


Wishing you all a Safe and Happy New Year, we look forward to seeing you all in 2016.

May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill

Hello Everybody,
I hope you have your air-conditioners or fans in working order! Only the first week in December and we are feeling the Summer heat on us. Remember keep up your water consumption and wear something on your head if out in the sun for a length of time. I think most of us would rather stay indoors and pursue our favourite activities, like some lazy sewing for example.
Thank you all for the year that has passed. We have grown in numbers which is wonderful to see. During the year we have learnt new skills and found new ideas and inspirations from workshops and from everyone around us. Something I admire in quilters I meet is that everyone is ready to share ideas, techniques as well as friendship. Somehow, this gives me hope for the continued survival of our world.
I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.Enjoy the festivities with family and friends. And I will see you in February at one or both of the gatherings.
Karin   (Kilmore Quilters President)     

We had a great turnout to the Evening Gathering, our last for this year. Lots of beautiful work on display and plenty of Christmas cheer.
Our day gathering was a smaller gathering however there was still a great deal of show and tell with plenty of festive spirit. Great to see our visitors becoming regular visitors.

We blinked and November was already over.

Where did the month go?  November has become such a busy month that time just flies by.

This month we had our usual gatherings along with a 10am - 10pm Sit n Sew, which also included a class for the Juniors.

Perhaps it's just that time of year or maybe we are just all exhausted by the time dinner is over, our last couple of evening gatherings have been a little quiet.  However, that does not mean we've been light on for show and tell.

There have been some lovely quilts and stitcheries to see, along with some great progress on La Pascaglia quilts.

Our day gathering however was quite a bit busier, with a great turnout.  And once again plenty to see.

Some of the ladies are getting with the spirit and working on Christmas themed items, while others are finishing up UFOs or working hard to get items finished in time to give as gifts.

Our Sit n Sew was well attended this month and the Juniors class was very popular with both the Juniors and the "Seniors" sewing up a multitude of Ipod/Ipad stands.   Thank you once again to Maryanne for taking the time to patiently teach your students, both young and old.
